Catching Up

Greetings litebeings! It has been a good stretch since I posted anything, especially anything new. I have been working on balancing my life, and practicing self-care to increase my inner resilience. I am also working on  a guest post that is rather intense. I hope everyone out there is enjoying the change of season. It is an exceptionally rainy May in my neck of the woods.

Speaking of woods, here are a few photos from my latest trip to Longwood Gardens:


I have been re-vitalizing my meditation practice with a different type of breathing and adding chanting back to the mix. I recently learned that an extended exhale and the act of chanting help relax the vagus nerve, which plays a role in heart rate and digestion. I am also enjoying select lectures from the Hay House Summit, which is happening right now. I enjoyed an interview with Esther Hicks and a video featuring Caroline Myss. Check it out and discover an array of material on all things metaphysical.

Finally, I want to extend a Happy Mother’s Day to all who love and nurture others. Ceres the grain goddess is also a very maternal figure and while I do not have children, my prominent Ceres makes me an Earth Mother of sorts, particularly to those of the feline persuasion. Let’s honor those who extend affection, protection, and care to those in need to foster their development and well -being.

Even when I am away, my thoughts and energy are always with my readers, followers, fellow writers and all that connect with me at litebeing chronicles.

Namaste, litebeing

Pluto station – purge, clear, forgive, release

On September 20, 2013 at 11:29 AM EST, Pluto goes direct.

Here are keywords for Pluto – the masses, underworld, regeneration, crime, rebirth, obsession, slow growth, undoing, transformation, power, control, redemption.

Depending on where you live,  you still have at least a few more hours to work with the Pluto energies.  I checked first to make sure everyone has some time! With so many international friends now, I am more cognizant of the ” movement” of time….   see http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

I would not worry about where Pluto resides in your birth chart or where it is transiting currently. Pluto makes its presence known and for the purpose of this post, I want to accentuate tools over technicalities. What is crucial is to find the proper tools that suit you.  I like dreamwork, prayer, chanting, letter writing, meditation, rummaging through both literal and metaphorical closets and drawers, griefwork, exercise, journaling, drumming and (general use of percussion instruments), and releasing of  toxicity by allowing any residual emotions to come up and be expressed.

This is an incredibly powerful time so I hope others are seizing this opportunity to excavate and let go.

I have found this particular Mantra Mediation series by Deva Premal & Miten profoundly potent. I have not chanted in eons and now I feel like I want to chant non-stop! I have been discovering a new voice inside of me that actually takes over while chanting. It is such a natural high that is free and healthy for anyone!

I also want to recommend using the Ho’oponopono prayer. Some of my fellow bloggers have been posting it recently and I have been practicing with great results.

I AM SORRY

PLEASE FORGIVE ME

I LOVE YOU

THANK YOU

Once you have done some deep cleaning, you can continue to move forward with co-creating and manifestation. Here are the lyrics to SemiSonic’s Closing Time. Read the words first and digest them before listening to the music :

 

Closing time  

 

Open all the doors and let you out into the world

Closing time

Turn all of the lights on over every boy and every girl

Closing time

One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer

Closing time

You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here  

 [Chorus:]

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

Take me home 

Closing time

Time for you to go out to the places you will be from

Closing time

This room won’t be open till your brothers or your sisters come

So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits

I hope you have found a friend

Closing time

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

[Chorus:]

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

Take me home 

Closing time

Time for you to go out to the places you will be from

[Chorus:]

I know who I want to take me home 

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

Take me home 

Closing time

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

I hope I gave you enough notice to do some Pluto work. If not, don’t despair, we are reborn again with every breath!

NAMASTE
